    I saw a great one that said FCUK but if you look really closely, the letters are made from people in different sexual positions.

    My God, I can't believe that people actually like that s**t, or think that it's actually funny. Maybe it's different in NYC, but once you've seen your tenthousandth fat teenager with bad highlights and an "ironic" FCUK slogan hovering above her jelly belly, you kind of go of it.....

    I don't know about anywhere else but in Newcastle FCUK is worn by teenagers and slightly pathetic thirty-something men in allright jobs...

    I have never seen anyone in my town or any of the surrounding areas wearing a FCUK tee. Plenty of ab flab, though.

    That's why it would still be extremely controversial for me to wear one :smile:

    Yeah, as much as I love FCUK, grown men who wear it are just pathetic....

    They should make a shirt for them that says "Too busy to FCUK" on the front and "....that's why my wife left me" on the back.

    I agree that the "ironic" FCUK slogans aren't all that edgy or trendy and shouldn't be worn by anyone out of high-school. That being said - those slogans were the only thing that separated French Connection from the pack, without those slogans nobody will give a f*ck about fcuk.

    i thought it was very clever...if somewhat lowbrow ...marketing strategy when it first began...but the irony has long since lost it's appeal and i'm happy to see them move on...

    I hate those t-shirts i find them so tacky, but thats just my opinion.

    They got banned when i was at college incase a dyslexic person read it wrongly, much to the disgust of the rest of the college :lol: .
